Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme from Marcia at The Printed Page.

Two new things for my Mailbox Monday this week...

First, I am using my new mailbox pic in the spirit of Christmas...I'm finally getting in to the spirit, although a little later than usual this year.  Also, those of you that are wondering about my Christmas blog...I am working on it.  I was hoping the banner I won from Bitten by Books could be created as a header, but I haven't heard anything so it looks like I'll be creating my own header.  I WILL have the blog up and running by Thanksgiving.  I promise!

Second, I am not going to be including book synopses this week as I have so many books to list.  However, each title will be a link to the synopsis if you find one particularly interesting.

Now...on with the goodies!


I won a $50 gift certificate from Lizzy Bleu, maker of exquisite vintage typewriter jewelry (Lizzy has a monthly giveaway which I found out about at Park Avenue Princess...what a great blog! If you haven't visited, you should do so and soon!)  Thanks again Lizzy and Amy!

Look at this gorgeous necklace.  I cannot include pics of all that I received, but I got this R necklace and also a G so I can wear them together on one necklace (my sons' initials).  I also got a B necklace for my mom for Christmas (her name is Bonita or Bonnie), a necklace with a vintage Santa pic AND, be still my heart, a necklace with a vintage Alice in Wonderland pic! You really must check out Lizzy's site.  Everything she creates is so beautiful...she is majorly talented!

Dawnbreaker: The Third Dark Days Novel by Jocelyn Drake

Pdf ebook sets of both Rowan of the Wood and Witch on the Water by Christine Rose & Ethan Rose.

Thank you to Bitten by Books...also for their great month long contest and for being such an awesome site!

In the Mail:

All three of these books I won from the BBAW's Hunt through History Scavenger Hunt (Thanks again!).

The following books I received in my introductory package for joining the Crafter's Choice book club.


These were purchased from my monthly Friends of the Library sale AND it was half price this month! All of these books for $10!!!

The Prestige by Christopher Priest

For the kids:

Did you get some great goodies too?

Happy Reading =o)



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. WOW!! What a great week you had! I love the jewelry, congrats on your win! I've seen it at Park Ave. Princess too and think it's such a clever idea.

    And so many good books too! You can never have too many Christmas books either. :) Enjoy them all!

  2. Wow! I think you win, lol :D I love all your books. Enjoy!

  3. Looks like you got some great books. Nectar from a Stone is pretty interesting. I will be reading A Separate Country soon.

  4. Blimey! I think you beat me this week. I think that actually makes me feel better about the amount of books coming into my house.

  5. Thanks for the great comments guys! I was truly blessed this week. If it wasn't for my sons and my books, my life would suck worse than it already does...LOL!

    Thanks all for stopping by!

  6. You really did get a great haul last week. I haven't read a Saint Germain book in years, I think I will have to revisit them soon.

    Love the new background by the way and yes, the Jessica Fletcher book was the one you told me about so I owe you a big thankyou!

  7. Wow! What a wonderful week!

    I'm SO glad you LOVE your LIZZY Goodies! You're more than welcome! I may have a quickie one for this month! Also, I'm holding a giveaway for a Twilight Bracelet by her as well!

    Make sure you come by and check it out! You can win twice :)
